Jon Favreau Explains Why The Mandalorian Was In ‘Boba Fett’
The Mandalorian probably the biggest one Star wars a television show produced by Disney. But according to series creator Jon Favreau, the show was on hold after its second season.
After The Mandalorianthe main characters, Din Djarin and Grogu, had appeared in The Boba Fett book, Jon Favreau knew exactly where to go with the show. Grogu was given the decision to either train with the Jedi Order, or reunite with Mando. He chose the latter. Since the relationship between Grogu and Djarin is the heart of the show, it only makes sense that the characters can’t go anywhere when they’re separated.
Some fans have wondered why Favreau chose to tell this story The Boba Fett book than in season 3 of The Mandalorian. Here’s what he said The Hollywood Reporter:
We have characters that are in both sets of stories, so we can use the Boba Fett Book opportunity to get into where those characters are. I knew I didn’t want to give a lot of screen time within The Mandalorian to a point where there wasn’t much character development. Both [Din and Grogu] they were kind of stuck, as far as character development goes, until they were reunited. So, I felt like it allowed me to do both of those things and it freed me up now two years later to have a whole new context for these two characters to have a relationship and move forward.”
That’s to explain; it’s up to you to decide if that’s a satisfactory explanation for all the confusion about Mando and Grogu. The Mandalorian season 3 is streaming now on Disney+. New major programs appearing on Wednesdays.
